Dr LoraKim Joyner is a wildlife veterinarian with 30 years working with avian species. She helps lead the efforts to protect the Scarlet Macaw Parrot in Honduras. Today we are going to talk about the current human-wildlife conflicts, poaching, and international trafficking. We are also going to talk about the amazing conservation success created by the Mosikito people in Honduras. She is also a Unitarian Universalist minister, certified in nonviolent communication which aids her in promoting the health of humans, for without the flourishing of people the parrots don’t stand a chance.
